A Cost Effective Proposition
A monopole tower is a new type of electricity and WiûFi transmission tower which takes up less space as compared to the conventional lattice tower.
Monopoles can replace angular towers when facing RoW issues
Monopoles are used for a series of applications and are ideal for use when sufficient availability of land is restricted. They are the least intrusive and easiest towers to erect, making them one of the most popular tower types in the industry.
Despite having been a part of the India power T&D for over 50 years, lack of awareness and expertise of utilities, have left monopoles as yet obscured.
Monopoles are actually cheaper based on life-cycle-cost
Advantages of monopole in comparison to conventional tower are: Less right-of-way (RoW), better appearance, less components resulting in faster installation, better reliability under extreme conditions, design flexibility, vandalism proof, reliable performance and longer service life.
